“I just received the check to cover the rent and utilites for my tenant.  I really appreciated your generosity.  It’s a tough time for everyone and it warms the heart to know that there are organizations like yours that are kind, helpful and gracious.”

Kris, Landlord working with the ERAP Program


Michael is a veteran with a wife and three teenagers. He recently applied to OnTrack. I needed to call him about a missing income document. I found out that their bills are racking up and they haven’t been able to afford food for two weeks. So, I mentioned that Catholic Charities has food help and I could put a box together for him. I don’t think I have heard someone so overjoyed for food before (His voice was cracking when he heard). He will come pick up the food soon.


"The counseling services that I received changed my life. They made me a better person."

Catholic Charities' mission is to provide compassionate human services with respect for the sanctity of all human life.

Your gift will feed the hungry, find shelter for the homeless, counsel those suffering with mental health issues and show respect for all, regardless of faith, race, age, or ability to pay.
